Russian media should increase presence in Crimea, Sevastopol - Slutsky

Russian media outlets should increase their presence in the Crimea, including Sevastopol, said Leonid Slutsky, Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee for CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Ties with Compatriots.

"We assumed our mass media were present here [in the Crimea and Sevastopol] on a scale slightly bigger than that of some sporadic landing troops. We are not happy about it," he said at a meeting with members of the Crimean coalition council of Russian compatriots at the Crimean office of the Russian Federal Agency for CIS Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad and International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo) in Simferopol on Tuesday.

"Tomorrow we shall report to our administration that we need to switch to a completely different way of representation of the Russian mass media in Ukraine, and in particular, the Republic of Crimea," the parliamentarian said.
